    Interesting plugin and I like your suggestions for improvements, Jeff.

    I know I’m not the first to point this out, but it’s always worth remembering that these previews are still only a preview for a certain width/screen/device//browser/use/etc. That’s always a limitation plugins like this will hit.

    For both this plugin and the Front End Editor plugin, I personally still wonder whether either would be as necessary if theme authors spent more time making accurate editor-style.css files. If the primary problem is that text is the wrong font/size/color, WordPress already has a way to handle it.

    If this plugin is particularly good for something, it does solve the issue of previewing shortcodes.

    It’d be interesting to see a similar plugin that tried putting the preview in a third tab of the editor (i.e. “Visual,” “Text,” “Preview) a la GitHub’s comments.

    I love the idea of core features-as-plugins first.

    That said: when will we ever see the Post Formats UI core plugin?

    @Chip Bennett – I wonder that too, Chip. The closest to an answer I’ve seen was this comment on the CEUX plugin: http://make.wordpress.org/ui/2013/09/23/ceux-sept-17-chat-notes/#comment-23931

    At least the people on that project see it as the next iteration of Post Formats, never mind that there wasn’t really a first…

    I’m pretty sad that it seems the project just up and died.
